‘Love Hansal for being true-blue feminist’
Kangana Ranaut says that she is not just a fan of Hansal Mehta’s sensitive handling of subjects on screen but also loves his understanding and respect towards the fairer sex in real life.
Kangana and Hansal are teaming up on a film titled Simran and the 29-year-old actor couldn’t be happier as she gets to work with a man she finds incredibly talented and wonderful.
“The other day I called him, he told me he was ironing his daughters’ clothes. He treats his wife equally, he divides jobs with her. He is a true-blue feminist. I love him for that and have so much respect for him.”
The Queen actor says it is due to his respect for women that he has always been protective and supportive of her.
Also impressed with his working style, Tanu Weds Manu Returns actor says that like her first director Anurag Basu, Hansal does not give his actors full-fledged scripts and takes each day as it comes on set.
“The best part about him... After Anurag Basu, he is one director who does not give you a full-fledged script in hand. He won’t give you dialogues. Every day is a new day with him.
“He leaves it to the environment to inspire him, to his surroundings to tell him what scene he should shoot... He is a person who lives life with a lot of consciousness. I am a huge fan of him.”
